About the artisan
Born to the third generation of a KUMIKO fixture company that has been in business since 1946. His childhood memories are of being engrossed in making toys with the chips of wood he would find at the factory. He was apprenticed to the first apprentice of his grandfather, and since then has been active as an artisan carrying on the traditional craft of Kagawa KUDE shoji. He is a Certified Japanese Traditional Craftsman (dentou kougei shi).
What he creates
His creation is quite ambitious for a joinery. He creates items beyond fixtures or decoration for doors with his knowledge of wood, skills of KUMIKO/KUDE SHOJI and joinery. We asked him to join us because we can feel his love and passion towards wood crafts and responsibility as a successor of Japanese traditional craft skills through his work.
